FEATURES & OPTIONS
XJ DRIVING DYNAMICS
THREE XJ ENGINES
The XJ offers a choice of exceptional engines built to satisfy different driving styles and requirements, but always to ensure outstanding performance and handling.
The 3.0L V6 340 hp Supercharged engine provides high performance and fuel efficiency,2 with an immediate response even at low engine speeds. With 332 lb-ft of torque, it can accelerate the XJ from rest to 60 mph in just 5.7 seconds.3 Available on the XJ, XJ AWD, XJL Portfolio and XJL Portfolio AWD.
On the XJ/XJL Supercharged, the 5.0L V8 470 hp Supercharged engine provides exceptional levels of power at all engine speeds, outstanding mid-range acceleration and 0-60 mph acceleration of just 4.9 seconds.3
The XJR delivers awesome performance produced by its exclusive 5.0L V8 550 hp Supercharged engine, tuned and calibrated to produce a top speed of up to 174 mph.3 This is a premium luxury sedan that accelerates from a standstill to 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds.3
JAGUAR SEQUENTIAL SHIFT™
ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL WITH FORWARD ALERT
Drive with greater peace of mind as Adaptive Cruise Control automatically adjusts your speed to match the vehicles ahead.4 A microwave radar in your front bumper senses if the vehicle ahead slows, adjusting the throttle and brakes to maintain a pre-set following distance. Your XJ resumes its pre-set speed as soon as the road is clear. Forward Alert gives you an audible signal if the traffic ahead slows quickly or a nearby vehicle enters your lane. This feature is optional on all XJ models.
JAGUARDRIVE SELECTOR™ AND JAGUARDRIVE CONTROL™
The 8-speed transmission in the XJ is controlled by the beautifully designed JaguarDrive Selector™, which rises into your hand once the Start/Stop button is pressed. Simply rotate the selector to move from Park to Reverse or Drive. JaguarDrive Control™ offers specific settings for the drivetrain: Dynamic Mode, which modifies transmission shift points while illuminating the Virtual Instruments in red, or Winter Mode, indicated with instruments in ice blue, providing more progressive throttle control for slippery conditions.4
To assist in keeping your XJ rock solid even on loose road surfaces, the Active Differential in the XJ/XJL Supercharged and XJR detects wheelspin and varies the torque delivery to each rear wheel, enhancing both traction and cornering agility.
For the ideal balance between comfort and handling, Adaptive Dynamics analyzes vehicle speed, steering and body movements of the XJ up to 500 times a second, and then continuously modifies suspension damping rates for increased stability and comfort, whether cornering, negotiating potholes or accelerating on the highway.4 This feature is standard on all XJ models.
DYNAMIC STABILITY CONTROL
Be prepared for unexpected road and weather conditions. The Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) default setting is designed to come into play as soon as DSC detects the wheels slipping.4 The TracDSC setting, on the other hand, allows a higher degree of wheelspin for sportier driving.4 In addition, DSC can be completely turned off for special conditions.
WINTER MODE COMES STANDARD
The JaguarDrive Control™ system on every XJ model features Winter Mode, a sophisticated setting that is designed to help maintain traction on snowy, wet roads. When activated, Winter Mode transforms the way the XJ responds: The engine, transmission and Dynamic Stability Control work together to help avoid slipping and skidding in adverse weather conditions. When activated on models with Instinctive All Wheel Drive™, Winter Mode changes the default torque split to 30/70 front/rear.4
